Stores’ shelves are filled with food products containing titanium dioxide (titanium gelatin) along with many other chemicals hidden under meaningless abbreviations.
Your food is literally filled with it.
Unfortunately, it is not only in food, because it is also added to: cosmetics, soaps, and detergents.
How do you know if a product contains titanium dioxide?
Well, it gives the product a white color.
Is Titanium Dioxide harmful?
Titanium Dioxide hides behind abbreviations such as: E 171 (titanium gelatin), CI 77891, or titanium white.
It is a white, odorless, matt powder, a mineral pigment.
This harmful agent dyes products such as: cosmetics, soaps, detergents, food products.
According to the European Union criterion, it is not dangerous.
It is officially said to be harmless to health because there is no research on its destructive effects on the body.
Independent media research contradicts this report. The journal Chemical Research in Toxicology published information that titanium dioxide is harmful to health. It penetrates cellular and nuclear membranes, damaging DNA structures.
Titanium Dioxide is toxic
The researchers at the University of Turin have found that some form of this compound susceptible to ultraviolet radiation becomes toxic.
Thus, it contributes to cancerous changes.
In addition, studies have shown that this compound is neurotoxic, which damages nerve cells and leads to neurodegeneration.
How can you eliminate titanium dioxide?
I recommend reading the product labels.
A lot of important information can be found on the packaging of the products.
How to reduce your exposure to Titanium Dioxide?
You should choose only those products that you trust or that come from a reliable source.
Do not buy food spontaneously, just because the commercials sell them by presenting beautiful movie scenes and slogans.
Rely on the food products from producers who inform you exactly where the product comes from and how it is made.
The easiest way is to buy products without titanium dioxide. Our market is quite abundant and we have the opportunity to choose products that do not contain this compound.
It is proven to have carcinogenic and cytotoxic effects, so do not buy for your own good and for the good of your relatives.
Sometimes it’s better to give up something to avoid possible future problems.
Especially parents should be aware of its presence in any products.
Because it is contained in relatively “friendly” products, which you give to your children, guided by ex. the principle that chewing gum will refresh your children’s breath and even cleanse and reduce the action of acids in the mouth.
Is that true?
You give up something to gain something, you should arrive at your own conclusions.
